Integrating Controls and Safety Provides Protection and Productivity

ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
There was a time safety meant electromechanical relays and e-stops, light curtains and guards. The safety system was on one network, the control system was on another, and ne’er the tween shall meet. It prevented common-mode failure and enabled safe operations. Today, that thinking has changed. OEMs and integrators are increasingly combining the two technologies on a single network. It’s not just motivated by cost reduction but by improved performance, both for production and for safety. In this webcast, we’ll take a closer look at the process of integrating the controls layer with safety implementation, what that looks like, the benefits it brings, and the challenges.
